for the election. the law sparked a whole bunch of protests who say it alienates citizens. if they rule against the law it will be put on hold until after the election. >> check out the white house. this is what it looked like in honor of breast cancer awareness month. across the bond in london buckingham palace turning pink, too. those are your 5@5:00. >>> talking politics now president obama and mitt romney have the first debate tomorrow in november. >>> we have a new poll that is out but it hasn't done much for the politics the national average for the polls. it was up 3 and a half points. the national picture remains very, very close. one of the swing states is the scene of the debate. he got last minute campaigning he got a last minute endorsement from quarterback john elway. he is preparing for a much more critical stage on wednesday. >> these debates are an opportunity for each of us to describe the pathway forward for america that we would choose. american people are going to have to make their choice as to what kind of debate they want. it will be a conversation with the american peopl
of the great columns of the democratic convention. 2009. this is where he signed the stimulus in law. tonight, he puts it all on the line trying to make his case for a second term. bret? >> bret: ed, thank you. experts will tell you the challenger often gets a slight bump in the polls after the first debate by standing next to the president. romney is hoping for that and more as he takes half the spotlight tonight. chief political correspondent carl cameron has that part of the story. >> reporter: romney prepared for weeks. 57% for the latest gallup poll think the president will win the debates to only 33% for romney on this evening main topic the economy economy, romney has an edge. 50% say things will improve if he becomes president to 35% who say they will get worse. if the president is re-elected, only 48% say it will get better to 40% who think it will worsen. romney released a new ad straight to camera today foreshadowing tonight's principal message. >> too many americans are struggling, living paycheck to paycheck. more americans live in poverty than when president obama took office. >
be a violation of the law. >> joined by our pentagon correspondent, barbara starr. you've been digging into this for new information. you say as early as april, the united states sent special forces into benghazi for a specific reason. >> they did, indeed, carol. what we've learned is that a very small team of special forces commandos were sent to that benghazi compound. this was back in april. if you think back a u.n. -- united nations convoy in the region had been attacked. growing security concerns at that time back in april, about what was going on in that region in eastern libya. so, the u.s. sent a team of about four special forces, commandos to the benghazi compound. they did a security assessment. what could be done to improve security at the facility. and they recommended apparently, we are told, a couple of things that seem fairly minor in retrospect. sand bagging some positions so libyan forces who were there, contractors, essentially, could help fight back if the place came under attack and also were training for some of that private security force that was hired for the co
might address that gap. [laughter] there are six products of harvard law school and three products of yale law school on the supreme court. there are apparently no other law schools in the united states. [laughter] besides those two. no, it is a bizarre and unfortunately fact, i think. but those are, i hope, interesting facts about the supreme court. but frankly, i don't think they're very important. here's an important fact. about the supreme court. there are five republicans and four democrats. i will speak for somewhat longer, but this is basically all you need to know. [laughter] if be there's a takeaway here, i have gotten to the point early. there are five republicans and four democrats, and that really tells you much of what you need to know. and it is true that the justices wear robes because they're supposed to look all alike, and they're supposed to look, you know, it's supposed to give the perception that they're all pretty much the same, but just as on the other side of first street the united states congress is deeply divided according to party, so is the united states
be notified as required by law that they could be out of work. mike emanuel is live in washington. this really affects all of us. if all of those employees are unemployed that really can move our unemployment rate and the job situation in this country, mike. what exactly is the law and what is being done right now? >> reporter: jenna the law is call the warn act which is supposed to provide 60 days notice ahead of mass layoffs, if those pentagon cuts could take effect. the obama administration says don't send out the notices right before election day, and if you, government contractor gets sued we'll pay your legal bills. i asked an expert if that is legal. >> the administration has said that you don't have to send out these notices, because we haven't given you the specific information as to what plans, what projects will be cut. the o & b was supposed to produce that information. have you a rather bizarre game of chicken, on this occasion, however it will be thousands of workers that go over the cliff. but ultimately it comes down to the administration saying we think we going to win. >> rep
law school graduates, romney also was a harvard mba, will square off and try to tell americans that they're very relatable. [laughter] we'll look forward to that. all right, chris, thank you. >> thank you. megyn: well, these debates, i mean, they're great theater for the american public, and they really do help a lot of americans decide whether it's just a visceral reaction or i like that guy better, they help americans decide. and a lot of the times it's the gaffes that turn people against the candidates. these campaigns, they're searching for the one defining moment, but of course they're also hoping it won't be an awkward one that sinks their campaign. recall 1992 when president george h.w. bush checks his watch during a debate with then-candidate bill clinton. the gesture gave voters the impression that he was impatient and uninterested. during the 2000 presidential debates, al gore got up in governor george w. bush's grill. look. [laughter] just a classic moment where he was invading his personal space a little, and, boy, did he take some flak. mr. bush gave him a nod and
this is unacceptable. >> gretchen: they believe under federal law man dated the creation of on base voters assistance offices which they claim is not put in place. we concluded the department stands in clear violation of the federal law that man dated creation of onbase voters offices. and it will likely be paid this november by military service members and their families. you can still get the ballots and if you are a member of the military member. and family member of machine overseas they still have time to get it >> brian: if you don't get your ballot write us or maybe you are disinterested which is hard to believe with the cut backs and lay aughts and calling recruiting station that affects somebody. you are worried about your health care. 92 you have another assignment, if you have not requested an absentee ballot and why. coming up. should an illegal imbe a u.s. lawyerine though he is not a u.s. citizen. that is a big debate coming up. >> gretchen: white house offering them money so they don't send out a pink slip, is that a coincidence. stewart varney said he thought not in his british accent
are ineffectual policies like the president's healthcare law and stimulus packages, but the cost of those policies as compared to romney's own perscriptions that call for smaller less expensive government. for the president what he's going to try to do is say look, maybe things aren't so great but it is partly the fault of george w. bush and the republicans who were in office prior to the democrats taking control in 2009, so we need time to fix it, and by the way, the president will also say that he wants to increase taxes on people like mitt romney to help pay down some of that debt. >> reporter: we just put of that graphic there showing the $16 trillion of debt and there are so many digits it almost doesn't fit on the tv screen across the screen there, as you can see. but haven't americans in some way become number to astronomical numbers? how serious is this in. >> they have become number. is it the new normal this massive spilling of red ink but it raises three problems which i don't think the nation has got even to grips with yet. number one our economy is smaller than our debt. we look like
that the university of michigan law school, where they did use race in admission, had a lower level of -- they considered 14% to be a critical mass, much less than what the university of texas achieved through race-neutral means. i think this goes a long way to explaining why most observers think the supreme court is likely to strike down the use of race at the university of texas. the second question we take up, what should replace race-based affirmative action if it in fact is struck down by the u.s. supreme court? in a report, we look at nine states where, because of voter initiative or executive order or legislation, universities -- they did not give up on diversity and tried to find other ways of achieving racial and ethnic diversity. these plans were hardly perfect, but in many ways there are better than the old style of race-based affirmative action. you can see that in our analysis, six state street -- six states created partnerships with disadvantaged by schools to increase the pipeline of low- income and minority students. seven of the states provide class-based admission
. >> this isn't about terrorism. these are regular law enforcement investigations, and this is, this is, investigating people's communications. these are, who they talked to. who they e-mailed. who they engage in online conversations with, their friends, family, colleagues and loved once. >> reporter: here are some facts gathered by the aclu from justice department document. between 2009 and 2011 the number of orders for surveillance went up 60%. e-mails and network data, while smaller in number, increased by 361%. this type of information used to be gathered from devices attached right to the telephone but now, it can easily be retrieved by the phone company internally. aclu says it is done without a judge considering merits of the case. but the department of justice fired back saying in a statement, in every instance cited here the federal judge authorized law enforcement activity as criminals increasingly use new and sophisticated technologies use of orders used by a judge and strictly authorized by congress is essential for law enforcement to carry out its duty and to protect the pu
protection project. ms. rotunda is a former army jag attorney and a military law pro first at chapman university. kendra, welcome. >> thank you. >> what's going on here? are you saying in this that the absentee ballot process which supposedly was improved by law is not working? and so the men and women can't vote? >> it's not working and it's not working because the pentagon simply is not following the law. they're ignoring federal law. they're supposed to have military voter registration on federal bases and they're just not doing it. and it's leading to what we think are going to be record lows in military rovoter turnou by as great as 70% dips in key states like virginia and ohio. >> if i were a cynic, if i were a cynic i would say this is because polls show 60% of military voters vote republican. now, would i be too cynical? >> you know, who knows? but what really matters is it doesn't matter how they vote, it matters that they vote. and this is clearly frustrating their right, their opportunity, to be able to cast a ballot this election year. and the pentagon frankly seems not to
has just enumerated, but also because the world has changed around us. in part because the laws our policy. we spent an awful lot of time, effort and money after world war ii creating an international system, economic system in particular to stimulate the growth in the rest of the world. so, this is the success of the policy of several decades that has made us relatively less strong in terms of disposable cash and disposable incentives to get to the behavior that we want to see. militarily, we surely are as strong as we have ever been, but we live in a world that has a number of nuclear powers and we still live in the world before 1957 that had not. so, other than us. you know, to me it hardly even seems worth debating this is a different world. >> i was told we have to debate. [inaudible] the decline is the wrong word. i think the world is getting more crowded. they are growing faster and in economic terms the u.s. will have the west shared wealth for the years ahead but there isn't a country by the way that is as jessica said that is a story of american success. it's for 60 years
international order that upholds the rule of law, of open access to all domains, and of the peaceful resolution of disputes. we seek a peaceful asia-pacific region where all the states of the region, all of them, can enjoy the benefits of security and continue to prosper just as they have for almost 70 years, since the valiant efforts of the brave men and women who fought so courageously in world war ii. indeed, part of the reason states in the region have been able to prosper has been due to our military presence. thanks to that historic security, states in the region have had the freedom to choose and forge their own economic and political futures. the stability provided an important measure by the united states military presence in the region helped, first, japan and south korea to rise and prosper, then southeast asia to rise and prosper, and now, yes, china and in a different way, india, to rise and prosper. working with all of them, we intend to continue to play that positive, pivotal stabilizing role. that's what the rebalance is all about. to those who ask whether we'll be able to deliv
? >> well, it would make it very challenging. in fact, we have an emergency manager law used, but when it's used it's a major help to prevent bankruptcies and other challenges. that's also on the ballot. this would override that and leave us in a spot where communities might have bankruptcy as an option, and that's a very bad answer. >> governor, let me just ask you, what are the mechanics of this thing? in other words, if they get collective bargaining as a matter of state constitutional rights, does that undo all of your reforms as you call it to the michigan comeback? does that give the unions power even over the state legislature? is it that bad? >> it would in many aspects take us back in time and give a lot of power to unions in terms of the negotiating process and really wipe out a lot of benefits we have. we're the comeback state. we've gone through tough recessions before. we need to keep going. that's where i encourage our citizens to get out there look at the details of this and vote no on proposal two. >> will this bring out a bigger turnout? i've seen recent polls that show t
he launched hope and change he signed the stimulus bill into law in this city in 2009. now they expect is he going to come up big again tonight. he was quiet today, stayed off the campaign trail but had one of his best surrogates former president bill clinton aides say will be the primary case tonight which this was an economic crisis he inherited and tough to turn around in one term. take a listen to bill clinton. >> the economy is not fixed. i'm telling you nobody could have fixed this much damage in four years. but the president's economic plan is better in the short run, better in the long run and a vision of we're all in this together is a heck of a lot better than you're on your own. there is no you're on your own country in the world succeeding like those who have a good we're all in this together strategy. [cheers and applause] none, not one. the challenge for the president tonight though is back in early 2009 he said if he didn't turn around the economy for n. three years it would be a one-term proposition. that's the problem when you are incouple again you have go
in to law had taken effect. yes, you might say in terms of the job losses the worst was still to come when mr. become become came in. that is not so either. more than half the 8.7 million jobs lost as a result of the recession had been lost by inauguration day. the president inherited an economy still in recession all right. but the recovery came before the policies could take effec effect. remember this. deep recession including those in financial crisis lead to sharp recoveries but this has been the weakest recovery since world war ii. >> bret: you have covered a lot of debates. you're out for wednesday's to be on the panel but what do you think of this debate and how much the need can move if governor romney holds his own in the first debate? >> there is not much history of debates moving the needle much but it's interesting to see if governor romney can do something he needs to do, get across to people he is the man to make the economy an begin to really vibrate again. do it concisely and specifically. that is a challenge. but to stand next to obama for the first time on eke with footi
in another country because of the environmental laws or other laws are more supportive of the needs of their businesses and deliver product to market. so with that, then we are looking at another set of tensions. we are expecting the global supply chain to be available at all times. to enable from an ict perspective our confidentiality of the businesses and then we're demanding those products maintain their integrity. it's no mistake that i'm using the confidencialty integrity and available of information assurance, that's in many ways we're talking about the three tenants of information assurance we're not worried about the integrity of the products coming in to the global supply chain that might comprise the businesses or confidentiality so software behind the actual stuff. the products are being built, delivered maintains, upgraded all around the world and they are vulnerable to opponents who wish it harm. to manipulate the product through the design through the life cycle. and adversaries that may have access to those particular networks or designed to have accessn'ting access t
's more important than the law. >> we've gotten into trouble with that before, haven't we? >> yeah. >> never mind the dress up like a police officer which is actually a federal crime. and pulling people over. >> stephanie: different rules. sherry in louisiana. >> caller: good morning. >> stephanie: hello. >> caller: good morning. >> stephanie: go ahead. >> caller: two comments. we have five days in louisiana to register to vote. so everybody get out and vote. >> stephanie: do it. >> caller: we've got a big uptick on independent voters. you know. that's good to hear down here in the reddest state. one more thing. wasn't it several years back they talked about this national i.d. and they said no, no, we can't do that because that's against our privacy. so why now is it okay for us to have to have this i.d.? >> because they want to do it on a state level because they can deny it point to point using governorships because once -- the problem is state constitutions can act -- that's why when they talk about state's rig
was in the hospital and he got in touch with me, he said, you have a law degree, right? i said, yes, i do. he said, i'd like to write my will. so i went over to his hospital room and he proceeded to describe where he wanted his fishing rod to go and where he wanted his skateboard to go. and he wanted to give his rifle to his brother. throughout all of this, david had courage and strength of character. i'm reminded of that slogan, clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose. david didn't make it. but he did not lose. david is one of my heroes, one of the confidence builders that i have in america's future. i had the chance at the republican convention in tampa just a few weeks ago to meet a wonderful person, jane horton. jane's the wife of a shorpshootshorpshoot -- sharpshooter who went to afghanistan. there was a knock on her door telling her he'd been killed in afghanistan. this was at a time when misguided people are going to the funerals of our service members and protesting. she was asked what he thought about that as they were protesting her husband's funeral. and she said this, chris died so people lik
negate some of the new laws that are intended to require photo i.d.s? >> first observation is in terms of that case in maryland, that was one misguided example where it never should've happened. the race wasn't that close so it was a huge mistake by that individual and he paid for it with time in prison. in terms of your concern about voter i.d., having to show i.d., i live in virginia and i just got my voter card and did they allow anything like a utility bill or anything like that? it's a lot easier to vote in america than to get on an airplane so if you're worried about fraud, i think that -- these are feasible requirements. >> i guess in terms of polling, we tried to pull a registered voter list so there are registered voters presumably and then in elections we also try to sample people who not only register but have voted in past elections. [inaudible] how you account for that? >> our caller has asked about the voter i.d.. not a lot you can do but some of these places as you have pointed out, they have been thrown out or if they have been basically put aside for this election for
on stage last night, he said that he doesn't even know that there's such laws that encourage outsourcing. never heard of them. never heard of them. never heard of tax breaks for companies that ship jobs overseas. he said that if it's true, he must need a new accountant. now, we know for sure it was not the real mitt romney because he seems to be doing just fine with his current account. so you see, the man on stage last night, he does not want to be held accountable for the real mitt romney's decisions and what he's been saying for the last year. and that's because he knows full well that we don't want what he's been selling for the last year. >> president obama at that rally in denver earlier today. very, very different from what we saw in the debate last night. watch this. >> the last point i'd make before -- >> two minutes is up, sir. >> i think i had five seconds before you interrupted me was -- the irony is that we've seen this model work really well in massachusetts. >> all right. moments like that may have contributed to what so many people out there see as the president's debate
